"My Time" to color

My cabana boy scheduled this post for me because I'm strapped to a parachute on the back of a speedboat right now.

Hey there! The family and I are still in Hawaii, but that didn't stop me from getting all of my challenges done before I left!

Today Lauren has a color challenge for you...
Aren't these warm Fall colors just DELISH?!

I've been waiting for an excuse to whip out this stamp, so here she is... The striped pattern in the background is from SU's "To the Nines" collection and I layered it on Chocolate Chip cardstock. The main image is from DeNami Designs, and I have just fallen in love with all of their images. A good friend of mine worked in the DeNami booth at the last stamp expo, and now I'm totally hooked!

To finish off my card, I added a sentiment from Hambo and some mini leaves I picked up in a $1 bin at JoAnns ages ago.
Thanks a bunch for stopping by today!
Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team came up with today:

And be sure to link YOUR creation to Lauren's blog before next weekend so you have a chance to be highlighted in her "My Time to Shine" picks!
